Bassett Crush Clanfield To Go Joint Top

Radcot Road, 17th February 2010

Wootton Bassett Town made it a three-way tie atop Hellenic League Division One West with an emphatic 3-0 away victory against Clanfield.

All three goals came in the first half, and once again it was Sam Collier who led the way, as Bassett's jack-of-all-trades scored a brace to move into double figures and put him at the head of the scoring charts.

Both his strikes came after Jon Holloway had given the visitors the lead early on from the penalty spot.

Manager Dave Turner would probably have bitten the proverbial hand off had he been offered six points from the three away trips in a row that his team have now completed. Alongside what on paper was a tough contest against Clanfield, it included visits to Letcombe and North Leigh – both of which are never easy places to go.

But with maximum points taken, Bassett now take a huge amount of momentum into a run of five straight home games that begins with the visit of Cricklade Town, who were the last team to inflict defeat upon the side in the league – a span of 16 games.

Pressure has also been put on the three teams seemingly left in the fight for promotion. Cheltenham Saracens have now been leapfrogged, and with two further games in hand, Turner's side can really up the ante. Bassett are also now tied on 44 points with Purton – who have a game in hand – and Slimbridge, although there is something of a gulf in goal difference to make up.
